HALIFAX – Nova Scotia singer-songwriter Joel Plaskett’s latest record is truly a family affair.

Plaskett and his father Bill have collaborated on an album for the first time.

The album, titled ‘Solidarity,’ combines the elder Plaskett’s English folk roots with his son’s signature rock swagger.

Joel Plaskett says the clock was ticking for the father-son duo to make a record together.

But he says it wasn’t as easy as he anticipated to meld their musical styles.

The pair are taking ‘Solidarity’ on a cross-Canada tour following its release on February 17th.
